Cells belonging to the germ lineage segregate physically and molecularly from their somatic neighbors during embryogenesis. While germ line-specific chromatin modifications have been identified at later stages in the Caenorhabditis elegans nematode, none have been found in the single P4 germ line founder cell that arises at the beginning of gastrulation… CONTINUE READING
